Steady there KK!

Steady there KK!

Always an eternal optimist, possibly KK`s most outrageous claim was made earlier today when talking about Shola. Having claimed the striker could be back for good at SJP, he then talked up Shola`s ability to perform. I`ll let you figure out which parts of the following statement might be somewhat outlandish:

'He's back and will be in full training on Monday. He's fit. I'm quite happy to have him back. For £2.4m, where am I going to get a player like Shola? He knows the Premiership and the club, and he understands the area. I don't look at it as a minus at all.

'Who knows? He might be our top scorer this season - I wouldn't put it past him. We all know players who were going to leave, but stay and have a great season, and then sign a new contract.'
